WASHINGTON SQUARE
COUNTING CROWS


Standard tuning - no capo (scroll down for a capo 2) 

Intro:

E - C#m - Bm - A    
E - D - A - E

E              C#m
I sold my piano
                   Bm         A
It couldn’t come with me
               E
I locked up my bedroom
                          D    A
and I walked out into the air
                E        C#m
When nothing I needed
              Bm          A
is left there behind me
                        E       D
I walk out through the shadows
   A          E
Of Washington Square

                 E      C#m             Bm         A
Now I wander the highway from Dublin to Berkeley
                 E                    D       A
and I heard the songbirds of Valley Paurine
               E          C#m
I loved like a fountain
                     Bm       A
and it left me with nothing
                     E       D       A          E
just the memories of walking through Washington Square

                   E      C#m
Now I live in the shadows
               Bm         A
where light is electric
             E
and time is a number
                D      A
that rests on a wall
             E   C#m
Nobody knows me
                  Bm      A
my friends and my family
                      E    D
are as far from this city
   A           E
as Washington Square

Harmonica solo:
E - C#m - Bm - A

              E           C#m
So cover this warm night
                 Bm       A
in a blanket of starlight
                     E
And I'll follow this freeway
             D         A
out into the air
                   E      C#m
in case you should wonder
              Bm         A
and wanted to find me
               E      D   A          E
I’m traveling homeward to Washington Square
               E      D(hold)        E
I’m traveling homeward to Washington Square
E - C#m - Bm - A                E - C#m - Bm - A                E - Bm - A - E
                 Washington Square             Washington Square

good job, chords are spot on. looks like in some of the videos they play it capo 2 and chords transcribed accordingly...
Excellent job!

Referring to the Capo 2 section...
You've stated it goes back to C and G for the second line of each verse. It doesn't. The verses go D - Bm - Am - G for each line of lyrics. The only time he plays a C is in the chorus, watch the live video.
